The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) is offering a unique learning opportunity on November 15th at the U.S. National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland.

Managing Digital Research Objects in an Expanding Science Ecosystem will share information about digital research objects (DROs) – digital representations of data, publications, software, authors, etc. These include semantic approaches to assign and map metadata to DROs, as well as characterizing DROs on the basis of their associations with other DROs to provide a “fingerprint” for the DRO and an inferable and automatically updated set of metadata.

This event will present how the challenges of characterizing DROs at scale are being or might be met. Attendees will hear case studies and learn from their challenges and successes. Learn more about the event and register today. It is the last chance to register online.

This event is co-sponsored by CENDI, Research Data Alliance/US (RDA/US), and the National Academies Board on Research Data and Information.
